Academy Museum of Motion Pictures

Los Angeles, US 90036

July 30, 2022 | 11am


Part of the Family Matinees series, the screening will take place in the Ted Mann Theater on July 30, 2022, at 11am PT, following the Academy Museum’s educational program Calm Morning: Fantastical Worlds.

Oscar®-winner Michaël Dudok de Wit (Father and Daughter) teamed up with Studio Ghibli for this visually striking, dialogue-free adventure that received an Academy Award nomination for Best Animated Feature Film in 2017. When a man is shipwrecked on a remote island, he is forced to make peace with the natural world and finds an unexpected new life.

From 9am-11am, visitors can explore the Inventing Worlds and Characters: Encounters gallery in the Stories of Cinema exhibition and participate in drop-in storyboarding and concept design activities inspired by Black Panther, E.T., and The Dark Crystal. 

This Calm Morning program and accommodative screening create an environment for all visitors to enjoy less-sensory-stimulating spaces with moderated sound and lighting displays.
